The Nexus 6 Will Support T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling Following An OTA Update In Early 2015

Many T-Mobile users rely on Wi-Fi calling to use their mobile number without needing access to the mobile network, but they aren't Nexus 5 owners.

The carrier has already announced that it is bringing Wi-Fi calling to the handset.

Don't Panic, The Nexus 6 Will Come With Support For Wireless Charging

There have been many reasons to sweat over whether the Nexus 6 will come with wireless charging support. The new Moto X that it's derived from doesn't support the feature, and there's zero mention of it on Google's Nexus 6 page. Well, you can rest easy now. This year's Nexus phone will still have support for wireless charging. It's listed on the device's full spec sheet.
